When you think about Cebu, the whale sharks of Oslob usually come to mind. But there are other places like Samboan which are often overlooked. Samboan boasts of exciting hiking trails, a well-preserved marine sanctuary, and an astounding waterfall that is truly a wonder of nature. It is a destination more than worthy to be explored. Read on and discover more amazing tourist destinations in the Philippines:
Camotes Island – If you’re looking for undisturbed turquoise waters and the perfect sanctuary to sunbathe and dream life’s stress away, then the Camotes Island is for you. Made up of Pacjian, Ponson, Poro, and Tulang islands, they’re perfect for both the adventurous, and pleasure seekers alike.
Bontoc – Who can ever resist going to Banaue and Sagada? That’s why everyone goes straight there, and Bontoc, a beautiful alternative in the vicinity, goes unnoticed. Fairly recent though, it’s gaining a reputation in the local travel scene, luring travelers and adventurers with its ethereal ambiance and natural beauty. Bontoc surely rivals the most photogenic places in the country.
Northern Cebu – Have you ever wondered why Northern Cebu has succumbed to obscurity against its Southern counterpart? Northern Cebu is filled with gems and surprising places, and it will amaze anyone with its wealth of spectacular sites, including Danasan Eco Adventure Park, Carnaza Island, and Mount Kapayas.
Bukidnon – Within the vast lands of Mindanao lies the humble province of Bukidnon. With its cascading rolling hills and steep mountain hikes, Bukidnon is a destination for people craving for the great outdoors and of course, intense adventures.
Masbate – Even though more famous as the Rodeo Capital of the Philippines, Masbate still boasts of unique meadows, ornate caves, and one of the most diverse biological ecosystems in the Philippines. Despite these facts, it’s still very much free of tourists because of its unique location.
